    Valve keepers or retainers?

    We sell B18 and B20 retainers (but itll be monday before we can even have em shipped to you). I think the B16 are the same size, but im not sure.

    I can give you a quote on price when i get home. Btw they are from ZEX (comp cams)

    it just clicked what you were talking about...did your stock engine not come with them? I thought you could reuse them.

    But thats not the smae because the rods don't make dirrect contact with the crank. I guess if i can't find an Ti ones i'll just order them from honda. Sucks though $50 for keepers

    I don't think anyone makes titanium keepers. There has been no problems with the steel ones and they're so small the weight difference from steel vs. titanium would be negligible.

    I've never heard of Ti keepers. Use stock ones, they're fine. Hell the stock retainers are even stronger than Ti retainers. The only reason Ti is even used for retainers is for its mass.
